Awkward moments or awesomely hilarious? Or both? You be the judge:
Twitter was buzzing, while gasping for breath, over Anderson Cooper’s live interviews from The Vatican. Read and giggle madly.
I don’t know what’s worse: Chris Matthews telling the new Pope what he should do on MSNBC or Anderson Cooper interviewing Americans on CNN.

That ground-breaking moment where CNN flies Anderson Cooper 1st class ALL THE WAY to Vatican to find & interview, uhm.. American tourists

Loving the same basic answer to @andersoncooper query about why they’re in St. Peter’s Square: “Because there’s a new pope, dumbass.”

But, wait! There’s more.
“I’m so glad you’re here.” — Anderson Cooper to random Americans in St. Peter’s Square, for some reason

Why is Anderson Cooper saying he’s so glad every person he interviews is here? Is he the actual host of Pope Fest 2013?

Oh wow, Anderson Cooper finally found an Italian person to interview at St. Peter’s. #Pope

CNN’s Anderson Cooper now talking to that awesome guy you met in that bar in Naples in ’87.

And what’s with his microphone? Even that is awkward.
Why is Anderson Cooper using a feather duster as a microphone

The giggles continue.

Does Anderson Cooper always do this gasping breathing thing while reporting? He needs to get that checked out.

I really wish someone would respond to Anderson Cooper’s question: Why are you here? with “Just looking for some gelato, man.”
